Washington head coach Peter Laviolette shared his opinion on the form of team forward Alexander Ovechkin, who scored three goals in two NHL games. On Sunday night, the Russian struck the gate of “Tampa” (1: 2 OT).
– He's very good. And this is not surprising. Alex had a good summer training and getting ready for the season. He had a great camp. It got even better. He could have had a good last season too, but it was a bit of a tumble. And now we see how Ovechkin added.
He goes to the goal, opens for passes, looks for chances to score. We must pay tribute to his teammates. Kuzi (Kuznetsov) shows outstanding hockey, and Tom (Wilson) is like a bull in their top three and also does his job very well, ”said Laviolette.
Ovechkin has scored 49 goals in his career and scored 92 points in the games against Tampa. This is the first result in the history of the league.
